Van Looy, inspired by Vincent van Gogh (1853-1890), often recorded the beautiful scenery of floral life in his work. His painting titled Zomerweelde therefore is one of the most desirable works in the Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam. In this work, painted in a particular perspective, it seems as if the artist has liberally scattered blue flowers over the canvas, and thus demonstrating his expertise in immortalizing flowers.
